Abby’s Easy St. Patrick’s Day Classic

Almost every holiday is surrounded by food, and St. Patrick’s Day should be no exception. It’s a mystery to me why I’ve never tried Irish food because it sums up three of my favorite things: comfort, cabbage, and lots of starch. So when I was thinking about what I wanted to make for St. Patrick’s Day this year, I decided to try my hand at re-creating a classic Irish dish. However, while doing my research, I realized that many classic recipes feel a little bit intimidating because of slow-roasted meats or recipes that call for a dozen ingredients.

I created this recipe to be simple and approachable, as it calls for just a few vegetables and pre-sliced corned beef to save you time and clean up. Most would not call this recipe “traditional” because it brings a more caramelized texture and uses deli-style corned beef, but anyone can make it easily and it still has tons of depth of flavor. So if you’re looking for a quick and easy Irish recipe to prepare for St. Patrick’s day with no fuss, minimal mess, and minimal ingredients, look no further than my quick, oven-roasted corned beef and cabbage.


1 package of deli sliced corned beef

1 head of cabbage 

4-5 large carrots 

1 lb fingerling potatoes 

Olive oil 

Salt, pepper, and fresh herbs to taste 


Preheat your oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit. 

Rinse and chop carrots, potatoes, and cabbage into wedge-like shapes.

Slice corned beef into strips and set aside.

Lay out cabbage evenly on a parchment-lined baking sheet and toss in olive oil, salt and pepper.

Lay out carrots evenly on a separate baking sheet and repeat the same process.

Roast for 25 minutes or until golden brown. 

Meanwhile, fry fingerling potatoes on the stove skin-side down in a shallow pool of olive oil until golden brown and soft, approximately 8-10 minutes on medium-high heat 

Set aside potatoes once finished, but save the remaining oil. 

Add strips of beef to the oil and let fry until crispy. 

Sort everything in a large dish and enjoy! 

This recipe is incredibly easy to prepare, and the result is a delicious roasted corned beef and cabbage dish that will be sure to please anyone who gives it a try. Irish food deserves more recognition, and this recipe is the perfect way to introduce it to your friends and throw it into your regular cooking rotation. Happy St. Patrick’s Day!
